Look! The Fish are Flying!

This quarter we challenged the afternoon students to reach certain academic goals in order to achieve honor roll.  They had to complete a prescribed amount of work with a 90% average.  We told them the reward would be big – and it was.  Through the generosity of the owner of the West Bay Glass Bottom boat and donors from the U.S. we were able to take the entire afternoon class (as they all earned honor roll) on a ride to enjoy God’s underwater creations.

Upon arrival at the dock, Mason told me that he’d been praying all day that we’d get to go.  He had been checking in with me all morning to make sure we were going as he knew the sea was really choppy that day.  His face just lit up when we pulled into the dock.

After descending into the viewing chamber it was obvious that all the students were fascinated.  Jolee turned to me and with awe in her voice said,  “Ms. Deborah, isn’t God’s world just beautiful!”  It was a very touching moment.

On the other end of the boat, Mr. Freddie was surrounded by the boys.  Kenney exclaimed, “Look, Mr. Freddie!  The fish are flying!”IMGP5191

What a joy it was to teach the children that hard work has rewards and to share some of the incredible underwater beauty their island has.
